Many in our community, people are already iffy about going to the doctor whenever they don’t feel well.  They surely don’t want to go to the doctor to get checked for STDs.  Innerbody Research did a study of the STD rates on a city by city basis and came up with the top 100 cities that have the highest STD rates.

Unfortunately for us, multiple cities in the Carolinas made this list of cities with the highest STD rates in America. STDs are sexually transmitted diseases and should be taken seriously. This is the 6th annual study done by Innerbody Research. Can you believe multiple Carolina cities made the top 25? Not only that, but Charlotte is quite high up on the list. If you ain’t got checked in a while, then maybe you should start taking better care of yourself.

Here’s a list of cities in the Carolinas that made the top 25 on InnerBody’s list. Check out the full list here.
